It's a normal day for information broker Rex Malin when he's asked to deal with a murder, and the missing fiancée of a leading Toronto citizen. With his friends' help, Rex unravels the two mysteries. But it's his memories of the Great War that connect best the eerie present circumstances: the murder, the missing fiancée, and the spectral wolves invading the city. George Weatherstaff believes he's found a way to escape his scandalous past: marry the beautiful and mysterious Lydia Botsaris

Alas, in David Lippincott's wholly unremarkable Unholy Mourning (Dell Books, Nov 1982), only a few moments achieve this kind of horror goodness. You can see Unholy Mourning gets off to a halfway decent start.

Alas, in David Lippincott's wholly unremarkable Unholy Mourning (Dell Books, Nov 1982), only a few moments achieve this kind of horror goodness. A dorky mortician with the disturbing name of Jorbie Tenniel is besieged by a homicidal "Voice" which tells him to bury various townspeople alive to avenge the death of his twin brother. Now it's present day, we're introduced to 20-something Angie Psalter, who's cut from the Talia Shire-as-Adrian cloth.

This is a good book I can't put it down.

David Lippincott's Unholy Mourning is one of those near miss novels, with a little trimming and a few sloppy plot points ironed out it would have been a first rate suspense thriller. As is it's just a two and a half star potboiler.
Poor Jorby has been driven mad by his guilt for the drowning death of his identical twin brother. When not romancing the town's old maid in training he's sitting and talking to a rock, his way of communicating with his dead brother. Through a convoluted set of circumstances he manages to get his hands on a cataleptic inducing drug (one not unlike that used in The Serpent and the Rainbow) that he uses on his neighbors and enemies to bury them alive. He also tape records the poor victims struggles to torment the remaining townspeople. Sadly Lippincott, while creating interesting characters, cannot weave all the plot elements together into a believable package, which robs the novel of a great deal of its impact. Despite its weakness the die hard horror buffs will be rewarded with an autopsy scene they won't soon forget.

I'll admitt this book really caught my attention quickly. I do indeed, enjoy strange novels that pique at the mind and psychosis. This book was pretty good at doing it. It is rather dramatic in it's premis, and the way it was written. The content is read out more as though you're being spoken to. That said, it's a good read in any case, or situation. The Case goes like this:

Angie Psalter is a young girl, alone, and drifting through her unsatisfying life. She has an eternal embarrasment on her shoulders, and her father is constantly drunk and absurd. Soon enough, life trakes a turn, as people angie knows, are dying. Her world is both sad, yet thrilled as she is enjoying the throws of passion around the same time. Jorbie, her new love, is everything to her. He brings passion, love, excitement, intrigue, life...and something else..... This perfect man is also the raging demon that has drapped his poisonous cloak over the town, St. Max, and Angie is soon in danger.

What makes this novel so deep, for me, is the way the characters are so thoroughly woven together. They do not take such a short time to be sexually involved. It develops their relationship very much, and allows you, the reader, to feel them, as human beings. When all the atrocities are happening, the young heroine is torn, as she knows her lover is a threat, she just cannot leave him, or the threatening position she is in. Love is stronger than most forces. This type of love is obviously the type that get's people to survive. In this case, however, love is the most unholy of things in life.

Unholy Mourning is the story of Jorbie, a mortician with some major psychological disorders. When he was younger, he purposely caused the death of his identical twin and the guilt over this causes him to take his revenge on anybody his inner voice tells him to. Angie, a lonely girl, falls for Jorbie and no matter how unstable he is around her, this love is unwavering. This book was a pretty interesting and quick read and contains some truly horrifying scenes involving live burials and autopsies. It's worth a picking up if you can find it.

I made the mistake of picking up this book that was in a box with other paperbacks at a job back in 1985. Having read it, with regrets, not only traumatized me to this day, I cannot forget the story even tho it's fiction. Why, oh why, Mr. Lippincott, did you have to write this garbage?
